I had a pretty good day today!

Woke up a little before Janice again which was really nice. I never realized how nice it really is before these past two days! I now get why moms choose to wake up before their children! I plan on doing that more often, as of now anyway!

Janice is spending the night with her grandparents. I love those nights! I am sitting in a quiet house, watching stand up comedy with the Mr, and can go to bed, or eat a big bowl of ice cream, any time I please. It’s times like these I really appreciate having a night alone! They are few and far between, but I need to get them in now, because I am sure once the baby is born there will be even fewer!

A good friend stopped by this morning, it was glorious! I hadn’t seen her since April, even though it was only a 30 min visit it was much appreciated! She walked in the house and complimented me on how nice it looked, and that it smelt good! Even when we got to the kitchen she still said it looked nice and smelt good. (I didn’t let her go past the kitchen!) She is a fellow flybaby and has a son who is nearly six, so she knows how hard it can be. It is nice being complimented about your house though, weird!

We went to a family reunion today, the park it was at was beautiful! The weather must have been having hot flashes. It would be nice and cool, and then horribly hot and humid. I over did it for sure, by the time we left I was so sore I could barley move. The park was really relaxing, fully equipped with water falls and ducks!

I imagined myself walking down the waterfall!

I came to a realization in the park bathroom. It was a mixture of the dirty mirror and the ‘pregnancy glow’ I think. I realized today, I AM PRETTY! That’s right, I said it. I am pretty! I don’t know what it was but I felt pretty in that dirty bathroom, (I take it where I can get it). I told Andy that I realized that, and he agreed. I also told him I wanted to take a picture so I could remember it, but I HATE mirror pictures so I didn’t. A few min later Janice had to use the restroom, and guess what, she wanted to take a picture…so I did!!

So pretty, oh so pretty!

Janice had an absolute BLAST! She got to play with her Uncle Danny which she loves. The sound of her laughter erases away all the pain and stress that you can possibly have! I think it is true with all kids really! She also had fun playing the bean bag toss with her daddy and cousin Biff…. they would throw the bean bags, and Janice would run and collect them! It was cute as can be… see look:

Having fun in the sun!

Overall it was a good day! I have some toys to pick up and put away in the living room, then load and run the dishwasher for the night…but right now I am enjoying relaxing with my feet up in the quiet house!

I am excited for my baby step for tomorrow. Tomorrow is day 5, that is a whole work week that I will have been flying for! THAT IS AWESOME!  It is the little things that make me happy!

Day 5 baby step is:

“Are you hearing any of those nagging negative voices popping into your head? I want you to take a piece of paper and write down what you hear then I want you to turn those ugly words around and say something nice to yourself to negate the ugly words that they said.”  The Fly Lady

I have a big problem with holding on to negative thoughts and feelings, even those I heard almost 3 years ago, or even 7 years ago, or even 20 years ago. I know that the point of the baby step is to turn the negative thoughts you tell yourself around into something nice.  Baby steps towards a positive attuitde too!

oh so pretty!

    your home is somewhat a reflection of yourself, so a compliment on it reflects positively on you. if people love your place, they love you too. a natural response of their comfort level in your presence.

    nice that you could see the prettiness in your day. keep it up!! eventually, your eyes [and mind] will focus on such things automatically. everything can be trained into some kind of behaviors.
    good luck!!
